Hi everyone,

After I managed to set my Quectel 5G Modem to the status connected and being able to ping extern websites, I could see in the access technology field that it is connected to LTE. I am using ModemManager 1.14.2 (5G available) and I could see in the modes field that 5G should be the first option:

Modes field: allowed 3g 4g 5g, preferred 5G

We do have 5G coverage in our office so it should not be a problem to connect to that network. Is there a way to explicitly indicate the modem that it should connect to the 5G network? Or is it possible to connect it to two networks using ModemManager, LTE + 5G, ?aplying 5G EN-DC as described in https://www.rfwireless-world.com/Terminology/What-is-5G-EN-DC-Dual-Connectivity.html

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,
Federico Murciano
